Dads. Brothers. Husbands. Uncles. MEN. It’s never easy to shop for men, right? Many men buy what they want, when they want it. You come up with a killer gift idea for Father’s Day, you’re excited as all hell, and he walks in the door with the exact thing you just purchased for him for Father’s Day. Now what? You thought you had it in the bag! The key to perfect gifts for dads is to think outside the box. Well, to think outside HIS box. Let’s dive into it, shall we?
7 perfect gifts for dads
I know, I just told everyone to think outside the box, so this one will seem odd. It’s something that’s considered a monthly subscription “box.” However, it is thinking outside HIS box. Most men hate buying clothes for themselves. What do they wish would happen? Clothes magically appear in their closet that are perfect for his body, and his taste (if he has taste.) Well, Five Four Club can get the clothes magically to his doorstep, which is fairly close to his closet. A Five Four Club is the perfect gift for dads, trust me!
Do the dads in your life play sports? Do those sports require cleats? Is he walking all over your floors with those cleats? Does he walk around on cement with his cleats, so that he destroys the cleats and needs to purchase new ones ALL TOO OFTEN? No, well you’re a lucky bitch, aren’t you? Many of us aren’t as lucky. If you’re one of the unlucky ones, this gift is PERFECT for both you, and also one of my favorite perfect gifts for dad. It’s Cleatskins. Go. Now. Get them for the “cleat-wearing” dads in your life! Do it for your floors, if nothing else.
GPS Navigation Device
No man will buy anything that will help them with directions. However, all us ladies have on problem giving one as a gift, so it helps us on future road trips! I would imagine you won’t have to worry about him coming home with a Garmin – Dezl 5″ Gps With Built-in Bluetooth, Lifetime Map Updates And Lifetime Traffic Updates – Black. You’ll be safe, I can almost guarantee it.
Who doesn’t like to have a night out with a little “adult” beverage drinking? Most men won’t go out and buy anything to help a hangover, right? Not many people would. You just deal with the hell you put yourself into after a night of drinking. It’s how we’ve all done it for years. It’s a tradition. Well, it doesn’t have to be! You want the perfect gift for the dad in your life? Well, not for YOUR DAD, but for maybe a brother, or your husband? Get Never Hungover. It’s kind of going to be the best gift you give!!! Hell man, this might also be the perfect gift for everyone at a bachelor party, or a bachelorette party. A little “thanks for being a part of my wedding” gift. GENIUS if you ask me.
Again, yes, this is going to arrive in a crate, which is technically a box. However, AGAIN, it is thinking outside of “his” box. I would imagine no man is going to buy himself Man Crates. People would laugh at him. And by people I mean his wife, or girlfriend, or mother. Seriously, who wouldn’t laugh at a man who orders MAN CRATES? It’s not something a man would do. Not for himself. Instead, he’d figure out a way he could purchase it, and pawn it off as a gift for his lady friend. Of course, after opening it, would claim ownership of it. We’re hip to those tricks fellas, in case you didn’t know….
The Man Crates are rather cool, unique and totally “outside of the box” kind of gifts. I do believe my favorite is the Zombie Suppression Crate. Yes, it’s a thing and you have to check it out. Give it to your favorite dad who is totally into the Zombie Apocalypse. If you don’t have a dad in your life that’s into Zombies, that’s cool. There’s a ton of other Man Crates to choose from for the golfer, whiskey lover, baseball lover, and so many more!
Aaahh, yes. Great American days would be lovely. Peace, love, and relaxation…. but that’s not what this is about. I’m talking about life experiences given as gifts. You read that right. Give a life experience as a gift. Confused as to how one gives a life experience as a gift, beyond bringing a child into the world with your mate, and giving him the “dad” life experience? Don’t over think this, my friends. Great American Days is a place you can buy the chance to experience things like a chance to race a stock car, or be a fighter pilot. Kind of cool, I know. Perhaps he’ll return the favor when Mother’s Day rolls around next year?
Say what now? A salt collection? Who the hell would want that for a gift? Oh, if you only knew. My husband is a salt fanatic. He puts that shit on everything. He’d put salt on his salt if he could, so Flavors of American Salt Collection is the perfect gift for this particular dad in my life. It’s absolute gold in this house!
You’ve got to think beyond the ties, golf balls, and coffee mugs people! Get creative, and unique, and totally off-the-wall when it comes to the perfect gifts for dads! Kids can give the cute crap they made at school, of course. However, give those men a little something they won’t buy for themselves. If all else fails, throw on a little naughty something on for the father of your children, and give him a little something after the kids go to bed. The salt collection might come in handy in tandem with the naughty…. just putting it out there.
Have you got your ideas set for a few of the dads in your life? Is the perfect gift for dad on this list? Excellent, take a minute to enjoy a few Father’s Day posts from my fellow Chosen Chix!!!
